I lucked out and found one at a junkyard recently off a 96 OBW and it still cost me 50 bucks. It is in great shape though. I sold the car before I had installed this filler tube. A threw it on the shelf for the next Suby that has this common, costly problem.

A couple bucks at Napa sure beat 170 for the stealership!

Anyway I have a radiator shop that does 'redcoat' of gas tanks. I have them do my antiques when I have the gas tanks out. If it's pin holes this may work - atleast for a while.
The other possibility was an independent muffler shop that can bend pipe. Perhaps have them bend, then weld the piece in - off the vehicle of course. For this it would almost take a home made jig or another good filler tube.
I was shocked to find no good solutions here at USMB as well.

Don't fool with rubber hose - VW used rubber on some of their stuff and the filler nozzle will chew it up. Helped a buddy at work pull dozens of strands of rubber out of his fuel system from the filler nozzle ripping up the rubber filler neck each time it was inserted.
